After taking dinner at Time Square we went to Magnolia Bakery to take desserts. German Cake is looking attractive so we ordered it along with Cheese Cake and pudding. Coconut cookies are also nice.

Wow. The smell inside the bakery was incredible along with all the goodies. We stopped by for a cupcake after a long afternoon walk. Very crowded. I got a red velvet cupcake. It was good not great. The consistency of the cake seemed to indicate...More

I suppose if you love the texture and flavor of shortening and sugar these cupcake toppings are for you. The cake part is okay, just average and nothing special but it all boils down to what you are used to and what your expectations are....More

This tiny little store is still worth the visit if only for a buttercream cupcake that is so perfect you'll never be able to enjoy a cupcake anywhere else. My entire family are hooked on the cupcake and said it's the best they've ever eaten....More

Although I almost always get the magic bar, their other items are very good too. I tasted a piece of the cheesecake and loved it.

Seriously. The frosting is nothing but shortening with absolutely zero no flavor and the cake itself tastes worse than out of a box. And the price for these aweful things is criminal! Seriously. We waiting in a LONG line and bought 4 and each one...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

Checking their menu I see no mention of any item being gluten-free or milk-free. I would be careful. Although there may be some items that are free of one or the other, the absence of the ingredient list would make me... More

As far as I know the bakery opened in 1996, but runs now under a new management.

Can't hurt to order it in advance. We did that for my dad's birthday and it was definitely worth it, since we wanted a specific flavor.
